Yasmeen Bleeth was quite famous as a young actress. She was among the stars of the TV series Baywatch.

Paul is a secretive person, trying to stay out of the spotlight. His wife also disappeared from Hollywood after retiring from acting. What do we know about him? Who is the man linked with the Baywatch actress? Let’s find out.

Who Is His Famous Wife?

Born Yasmine Amanda Bleeth in June 1968, she is an American former actress and model. Yasmeen got famous for portraying Caroline Holden on Baywatch, but also Ryan Fenelli on Ryan’s Hope.

Born in New York City, United States, she comes from an entertainment family. Her mother Carina was a model while her father Philip Bleeth was a business proprietor. From her father’s side, she has Russian, Jewish, and German descent. On the other hand, her mother was a Pied-Noir from Algeria, with French ancestry.

Yasmine got her career start early on. At the age of six, she appeared on Candid Camera, and then in a Max Factor cosmetic advertising campaign. In the latter, she appeared alongside model Cristina Ferrare. Francesco Scavullo, the fashion photographer for the Max Factor campaign, noticed her and included her in his book Scavullo Women.

In 1980, at the age of 12, she appeared in her first film role. Yasmine starred alongside Buddy Hackett in the movie Hey Babe. Then, in 1983, she appeared in a commercial with the Puerto Rican group Menudo.

When she was 16 years of age, Bleeth began portraying Ryan Fenelli on the daytime soap opera Ryan’s Hope. She continued playing that role until the final episode in January 1989.

One year after the show’s cancelation, her mother passed away from breast cancer. The famous actress dealt with grief, saying, “I stayed home, watching cooking shows, taking walks”. For eight months, she turned down any offer, but then got the role of Lee Ann Demerest on another daytime soap opera, One Life to Live.

Despite being successful in soap opera series, Bleeth was not an international star. But that changed when she was cast as Caroline Holden on Baywatch. People magazine named her one of the most beautiful people in 1995. From 1996 to 2001, she appeared on the FHM’s list of 100 Sexiest Women in the World.

The widespread popularity helped her raise her career up a notch. She released her own line of swimwear called Yaz Wear.

Bleeth has also appeared on Nash Bridges and Titans. Fun fact: the famous actress was mentioned on the popular television series Friends several times, mainly by Chandler and Joey.

The actress retired after her first effort in a drug rehabilitation clinic in the early 2000s. She only shot one more performance for the 2003 television movie, Baywatch: Hawaiian Wedding.

Quick Bio

Now we go back to Yasmine’s husband, businessman Paul Cerrito. He was born into a rich family and has enjoyed a lavish lifestyle since childhood.

His father is Paul Cerrito Sr. and his mother is Victoria Cerrito. Paul has not disclosed any information about his parents, siblings, or childhood friends.

Born in July 1970, Paul is in his 50s as of June 2023. He is of mixed ethnic background and has American nationality.

The famous businessman is a strip club owner but tries to stay away from the public. He came to the limelight after marrying Yasmine Bleeth, a celebrity actress.

Marriage To Yasmeen

Yasmine was quite the star in the 1990s and early 2000s. As such, she dated some celebrities. Before meeting her future husband, she had some love affairs in the 1990s.

For example, she was in a long-term relationship with Richard Grieco, but they separated due to her drug habit. Some of her celebrity love affairs included Grant Show, Luke Perry, Matthew Perry, Steve Guttenberg, and David Charvet.

Paul and Bleeth met in December 2000 when she voluntarily entered the Malibu-based Promises Rehabilitation Clinic. She went there trying to overcome her cocaine dependence.

Later on, she recalls, “They say you shouldn’t get into any relationship in the first year of sobriety, especially with someone in the program. But Paul and I fell in love immediately”.

The couple got married in Santa Barbara, California, in August 2002. They now live in Los Angeles and Scottsdale Arizona.

Despite being married for decades, they have no children. They never had any children from a previous relationship.

Speaking about her drug abuse, Bleeth says, cocaine was a social phenomenon in 1998. It was like ordering Chinese food, you could phone a dealer and have it delivered to your house.

What Happened To His Wife?

In recent years, there have been photos of the Baywatch bombshell Yasmine surfacing the internet. She looks nothing like the sexy woman she was decades ago. But drug abuse has a tendency of doing that.

In the late 1990s, cocaine was a widespread phenomenon. You could easily order it. And all that stress from work put a strain on the famous actress. She would come home to lines.

Bleeth passed out at a Glamour picture shootout in July 2000. At the time, she was size 0 due to her drug abuse. Five months later, she entered the Promises recovery clinic in Malibu and things started to get better.

Yet, she went back on cocaine, and in September 2001, she drove off a highway near Detroit and into a median. She was high.

As part of a plea bargain, she spent the next two years of probation and was subject to regular drug testing. In the months that followed, she lived sober and spent time with Paul and his mother in Michigan. The actress gained 20 pounds dining at Paul’s mother’s house.

Her relationship with Paul helped her fight off drug abuse and addiction. And in recent years, there are photos of the former Baywatch star walking makeup free with her dog.

She keeps her attire simple, and nothing like the celebrity actress she was during the 1990s. At the time, she was one of the big stars of Baywatch alongside Pamela Anderson and David Hasselhoff.

Is He On Social Media?

Paul might be a strip club owner, but he tries to stay away from media attention. He is private and is not active on social media.

Yes, you can find him on social media. He has a private Instagram account named @paulcerrito. There, he posts updates about his fitness, workout routines, daily routine, and similar.

Paul has more than 1,300 posts, but only close to 700 followers. That means he is quite private and selective about who he accepts as a follower.

As for his wife, there is no social media account under her name. At least not a real account. You can find a couple of fan page accounts on Facebook and Instagram. They often post pictures of the former Baywatch star during her heydays.

Net Worth

Over the years, Paul has acquired a relatively decent amount of money through his strip club business. As of June 2023, he has a net worth of $500,000. Not bad for a private businessman.

His wife, American actress Yasmine Bleeth has a net worth of $2 million. She earned most of her money during her successful acting career in the 1980s and 1990s.
